Do you want a «Parisian’s chic” style home?

Updated: Jul 17


Paris, Capitale des lumières! Paris is synonym of trend, fashion, architecture and "bon goût".

And many people would love to have a house with this French touch, especially the Parisian touch! So, let see how you can transform your California home in a Parisian style home!


The thing is... it is first and foremost a matter of architecture. And we have to be honest, there are not so many Haussmannien buildings here in California… But anyway, let’s figure out what is this style and how you can adjust it to your place!



First, you need an old oak hardwood floor with character (point of Hungary like the picture). With the help of a good carpenter, you can have it !






Then, some elegant moldings on the ceiling but also on the walls, don’t forget the walls to create a statement!







Maybe a little more challenging: some door handles worthy of jewels… But you can find it for sure in your next trip in France!

This part is not the most difficult: you need large openings (windows, doors etc ...). You just need a good contractor to create those large openings!

So, now we are good with the architectural part of the Haussmannien style! Then, let see the easiest one to complete the style: the decoration!


To realize the perfect Parisian chic’s style, you need to mix old and contemporary but not only! You need to respect some rules:


1# White, white and even more white for the walls! It is bright and timeless







2# Mix and Match: You have to mix old furniture (you know the ones from your grandma or from a fair market) with some contemporary pieces.








3# Lights: Another important part, lights! No more ceiling spotlights but neat lighting, like contemporary designer chandeliers and table lamps for a warm and intimate atmosphere! If you want to be a real Parisian, girls, you absolutely need a Pipistrello lamp…


4# XXL Area Rug: So, you asked your contractor to create an amazing hardwood floor and now you love this stunning floor. But you have to protect it with an XXL area rug! You can’t see it any more but you have it!






5# Art: Let’s see now the final touch, Art! Art must be contemporary, must be big, crazy, fantastic! It is kind of your home becomes an art gallery! You got it? Think big, think ultra-modern, think Modern ART!


Now, I think you understand what is a Parisian’s chic style home!


You love this decor, you would like to do the same in your home, but you don’t know where to find the good contractor, those amazing XVIIIth mirrors or this beautiful jewel handles?
